Foxglove in the Garden

I like these plants around the farmhouse because the deer do not eat them, and they self seed for continuing plants. I found that I had to saved them from hubby.  He saw something on the local news about the plants being toxic to honeybees....well, I had to check up on that story before he removed all the plants. As it turns out, the story was about the pesticides that had been sprayed on the plants prior to sale at the local nurseries. My plants have never been sprayed, and are bee friendly. I had to call off the crazed hands of you-know-who. The plants are saved!
